I propose to hold a get together for all referees table officials and coaches, prior to a friendly match between the newly formed professional women’s team, Gloucester City Queens, and Worcester Wolves.
This will be on Sunday 19th September, 2021 at the University Sports Arena, Plock Court, Tewkesbury Road, Gloucester, GL2 9DW.
The game itself will be played to honour the Life of Joe Grainger, and it will be one of many events being held in Gloucester that weekend.
I am hoping the seminar will be hosted by a current BBL/WBBL referee.
Once all the details are finalised I will circulate the time.
I would also hope that everyone attends and stays to watch the game, critique the referees and celebrate the life of Joe Grainger.
Just a quick reminder that the GBBA AGM is being held on Thursday of this week at the Churchdown Club, Church Road, Churchdown, GL3 2ER. Start time is 19:30.
The pre Christmas fixtures, both League & Dextor Dawson Charity Cup games, are now available on the Fixtures page
The Basketball England membership portal is now open, signalling the start of the 2021/2022 season.
With NBL, WNBL, Jnr. NBL and local league competitions all set to get underway in the coming months, players, coaches, officials and other groups can now head online and register for upcoming campaign.
Following agreement from the BE board, initial membership will become free for all, allowing fans, followers, parents and others to join.
Members taking part in licenced activity (training and competition), such as players, coaches and officials, will then pay a licence fee.
The overall fee paid by all local league participants and the majority of National League members will be the same total as paid last season and remains unchanged for a third season running in recognition of the challenging time many in our game have faced during the pandemic lockdown.
Individuals requiring multiple licences for combined roles will still only pay for the most expensive. This will be calculated at the point of purchase by the portal.
The Basketball England membership portal has now reopened following essential maintenance, ready for licence renewals and purchases for the 2021/22 season.
The sign-ups will be staggered as follows:
- From 2 August to 4 August: Club admins/Team Managers/Area registrars
- From 5 August to 9 August: Coaches and Officials
- From 10 August: Players and Others
Members can register at any point from 2 August but queries will be dealt with based on the above onboarding dates.
